Extended Markers

DESCRIPTION:

I like to mark caches whenever I play. They're helpful in the event that I got myself into a bit of a pickle and have to fallback to supplies I've saved specifically for the occasion. G/ZD's markers unfortunately are limited to only 9, which is not quite enough for mods these days that have gotten some very big maps (WolfenDoom: Blade of Agony, Hedon, & Ashes Afterglow being examples). This addon's made so that I (and maybe others) can get more use out of the marker feature.

The way to use it is very simple. Bind a key to the Marker menu, and hit it anytime you need to mark something. A menu'll pop up showing you a list of options. I've also provided an additional sprite pack to change the marker theme from scribbles to something a bit more techy for more modern themed stuff. You'll have to load the _fancy pack after the main addon.

Now that's limitless! And might be fun if people would donate their own styled markers for this.

Not bad. Would it possible to make them individually removable?

Unfortunately, no. I don't know enough if it's even possible to assign a unique id to each single marker, let alone doing it without the other markers stepping on each other.
Pretty much why I also added the X marker there, to mark stuff I've cleared.

That's good enough, actually.

You should also have an O on there in addition to the X. Essentially it serves as a binary, Yes/No, Open/Close, True/False, etc. This way you can mark things like open or closed pathways and if something is opened, but later closed or vice versa, you can place an X or an O(or an O on an X) on the same spot to denote that it's changed.

Now, there's a thought. I'll see if I can add that in a bit.

EDIT: Done. That ought to do it.

Forgot to add offsets to the markers, resulting in their placements not being quite exactly where you should be putting them. Should be fixed, now.

This works amazing, and has almost perfect synergy with Zhs2's Intelligent Supplies. I love it and use it all the time, most of all for marking armors I usually forget about.

I have one request, though: can the markers be put on the automap by scrolling to the desired location, like the native numbered markers? Sometimes it's a pain to have to hoof it all the way back to a stash I forgot to mark down.

Unfortunately, no. I'm currently bereft of the skills necessary to figure out how to spawn things based on where you're looking at in the automap. Sorry.

Would it be possible to add in key bindings that can drop markers outside of the menu?

How the mod works is that the menu technically cheats by summoning marker actors in the field. It's kinda why this mod won't quite fly if sv_cheats is set to off for whatever reason.
You can manually add keybinds by typing something like this to the console:

bind L "summon ZS_Marker_Health"

That'll make your L key summon the health marker. Adjust accordingly.
